EILEEN Grimshaw is devastated as George dumps her after she destroys Gail’s dad Ted’s funeral next week in Coronation Street.
Eileen and Gail reignited their feud last month when Gail got cosy to Eileen’s crush George.

Viewers know that George began flirting with Mary and Eileen following his arrival in October 2020, when he staged a fake funeral for Eileen’s son Todd.
But Gail stole the limelight when she started trying to work out who a lady called Fanny was from a box of family photos she had – and discovered she was George’s cousin.
Next week’s episodes of Corrie will see Eileen assure George that, with Tim driving the hearse, Ted’s funeral will be over before they know it.
